Aguero suffers an injury setback


Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has suffered an injury setback in training and could now miss their next two games as an absolute minimum. According to the 'Guardian', the Argentine hitman suffered an abductor injury in training on Monday which has ruled him out of Tuesday night's game with Watford, whilst he is also a major doubt for the trip to Chelsea at the weekend.

Aguero was rested for the victory over Bournemouth on Saturday in a bid to stave off muscle fatigue, with the 30-year-old not even included in the squad against the 'Cherries' after having previously started all 13 of City's Premier League games so far this season.

The rest clearly didn't work, though, as the experienced goal-getter succumbed to injury immediately after rejoining full training on Monday. Aguero will now undergo tests to ascertain the extent of the problem, with there concerns he could be out for two weeks.

The former Atletico Madrid man has scored 12 goals in 17 games in all competitions so far this season, including eight in the Premier League as City picked up where they left off last term.

There is a good omen for City ahead of the clash with Chelsea, though, with Aguero also having missed the corresponding fixture last year as Kevin De Bruyne powered them to a 1-0 victory at Stamford Bridge.
